Ovarian Cancer Surgery

A surgery is the primary treatment procedure for removing the cancerous tumour from the ovaries. Based on how far cancer has spread in the body and patient’s general health, the extent of the surgery is determined. In most cases, ovarian cancer treatment involves a surgery followed by chemotherapy.

The doctor will first diagnose the type, stage and grade of cancer and then determine the course of the surgery. It can involve removing one or both ovaries, fallopian tubes and the uterus. If it is advanced cancer, the doctor will first perform debulking (removing the tumour as much as possible), followed by chemotherapy.

Sometimes, ovarian cancer may spread outside the ovaries and affect other body parts as well. In such cases, doctors might have to perform additional surgeries like:

  • Hysterectomy (Removing the Uterus)
  • Appendectomy
  • Omentectomy (Removing the fat layers that cover the intestines)
  • Cholecystectomy
  • Resection of bowel and/or other structures in the belly
  • Lymphadenectomy (elimination of affected lymph glands)
  • Splenectomy
